We went down to the Mall today to get Guitar Hero 3 for the Xbox 360, then thought, wait a sec... So I ended up with this instead!
It’s a Fender starter kit thing. Comes with guitar, practice amp, cables, strap, electronic tuner, guitar stand and case, and a Getting Started DVD.
I figured instead of spending $140 on a video game of guitar playing, I’d spend a bit more and learn to play the real thing! This whole package was only $400. (Although the DVD is actually excerpts from the full DVD, which I also bought).
So many concerts coming up! Next is both nights of the Black Crusade Tour (Arch Enemy, Machine Head, Shadows Fall, and Trivium) on the first and second of November at Luna Park. After that is Gigantour II (DevilDriver, Lacuna Coil, Static X, and Megadeth) on the sixteenth, also at Luna Park. Then is Behemoth in December, then Iron Maiden in February next year! \m/
And more shiny toys!
I almost forgot, I had my end-of-year performance review today, and I’m getting an 8.7% pay increase! 😀
Lily’s sleeping through the night which is nice... she’s usually out for a good seven or eight hours. We were at a friend’s place, her cat came up and was snoozing on us, and one of my roommates bought a kitten earlier this week. He’s been rampaging around and likes coming in and sleeping on the bed. And I’m finally not all povo and sleeping with the mattress on the floor! Looks very spiffy if I do say so myself.
I just got home from seeing Lily. 🙂 She’s so cute and little! Unfortunately I’ve got the beginnings of what feels like a nasty cold coming on, so it was probably safer with me not holding her quite yet. I snapped a couple of pictures, though. In the second one she started doing that a split-second before I took the picture, heh. 🙂
Ok, this is getting ridiculous. 😉 We had the quarterly AppleCare Excellence Awards this afternoon... I now have: 2x 1GB 1G shuffles, 2x 1GB 2G shuffles, 1x 2GB 2G nano, 1x 4GB 1G mini, 1x 4GB 1G nano, 1x 40GB 3G, and 1x 80GB 5G. Of those, I’ve gotten all of the shuffles (both 1 and 2G ones), the 2G nano, and the 1G mini from work. 😀
